How do networks respond to fluctuating inputs?—Localized? Homogeneous? Resonant? Across physics, biology, and engineering, the collective dynamics of oscillatory networks often evolve into self-organized operating states. How such networks respond to external fluctuating signals fundamentally underlies their function, yet is not well understood. Here, we present a theory of dynamic network response patterns and reveal how distributed resonance patterns emerge in oscillatory networks once the… Expand

Topological Determinants of Perturbation Spreading in Networks.
This work analytically identifies a purely topological factor encoding the interaction structure and strength and numerically estimates a master function characterizing the universal scaling of the perturbation arrival times across topologically different networks. Expand
Bounds and Estimates for the Response to Correlated Fluctuations in Asymmetric Complex Networks
We study the spreading of correlated fluctuations through networks with asymmetric and weighted coupling. This can be found in many real systems such as renewable power grids. These systems have soExpand
Vulnerability in dynamically driven oscillatory networks and power grids.
An easy-to-compute Dynamic Vulnerability Index (DVI) is proposed for identifying those nodes that exhibit largest amplitude responses to dynamic driving signals with given power spectra and thus are most vulnerable. Expand
Targeted suppression of failure spreading in multistable oscillator networks
Fluctuations and damages crucially determine the operation and stability of networked systems across disciplines, from electrical powergrids, to vascular networks or neuronal networks. Local changesExpand
Network desynchronization by non-Gaussian fluctuations.
A general theory for inertial oscillator network desynchronization by non-Gaussian noise is built and it is shown that higher moments of noise enter at specific powers of coupling: either speeding up or slowing down the rate exponentially depending on how noise statistics match the statistics of a network's slowest mode.

Low-frequency oscillations in coupled phase oscillators with inertia
It is found that the phase fluctuation is primarily determined by the network structural properties and forcing parameters, not the parameters specific to individual nodes such as power and damping. Expand

Impact of network topology on the stability of DC microgrids.
The stability of Watts-Strogatz DC microgrids is probed, in which droop-controlled producers and constant power load consumers are homogeneously distributed and obey Kirchhoff's circuit laws, to provide insight into the local dynamics of the perturbed system and derive explicit guidelines for the design of resilient DC power grids.

Understanding the dynamics of biological and neural oscillator networks through exact mean-field reductions: a review
Recently introduced approaches, known as the Ott–Antonsen and Watanabe–Strogatz reductions, allowing one to simplify the analysis by bridging small and large scales are reviewed, resulting in reduced model equations that exactly describe the collective dynamics for each subpopulation in the oscillator network via few collective variables only.

Dynamic information routing in complex networks
This work identifies a generic mechanism to route information on top of collective dynamical reference states in complex networks and demonstrates the power of this mechanism specifically for oscillatory dynamics and analyses how individual unit properties, the network topology and external inputs co-act to systematically organize information routing.

Oscillation-Induced Signal Transmission and Gating in Neural Circuits
It is found that for standard, additive couplings and a net excitatory effect of oscillations, robust propagation of synchrony is enabled in less prominent feed-forward structures than in systems without oscillations and that the oscillations may serve to stabilize the replay. Expand
Role of local network oscillations in resting-state functional connectivity
A large-scale model of the human brain's neural activity is investigated and it is shown that time-delayed network interaction leads to the emergence of slow neural activity fluctuations, whose patterns correlate significantly with the empirically measured FC. Expand
